What should I make for dinner?
If you’re like me, you find yourself asking this question all the time.
Before becoming a mother, I was a great planner and organizer. I had to-do lists for everything and no detail went forgotten. Then motherhood happened and my entire life turned upside down as in, now my life is chaotic and messy more often than not.
I’m not ashamed to admit that I forget things all the time- my kids’ doctor’s appointments, playdates, even shopping lists I composed earlier that day. I misplace my iphone, car keys and sunglasses many times in a day. I’m no longer the neat, organized and well-prepared girl I once was. And I know I’m not alone.
Just call me mom.
Because of my heavy mental load, one of the hardest part of motherhood is meal planning.
Because of my heavy mental load, one of the hardest part of motherhood is meal planning. I’d like my family to eat healthy home-cooked meals everyday but in middle of raising a baby, working from home and driving around my daughters to their daily after school activities, meal planning is not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes just going to the grocery store is such a chore that takes huge mental and physical space from my already busy day!
Thanks to HelloFresh, I can now lessen the heavy mental load by eliminating the need to plan out meals and go to the grocery store.

My favorite part of using meal delivery services like HelloFresh is that it frees up my mental space to focus on other things that need to be addressed throughout the day.
